For those who attended the Partnerships Awards back in May, we hope you agree that the atmosphere was one of the best. Over 700 people gathered to find out who had scooped the top awards and the celebrations (and commiserations) lasted into the early hours.
Now in its 18th year, the Partnerships Awards acts as a bellwether for the PPP industry. The number of entries unsurprisingly tallies with the number of deals and new market entrants we’ve seen that year. And the geography of the companies and projects being put forward tells us where the deals are happening.
Based on what we saw last year, Scotland is still leading the way for deal flow in the UK and Australia is showing an increase of attractive projects winning Best Rail Project and Projects Grand Prix for the North West Rail Link. Elsewhere, the hospital deals are now closing in Turkey and were rewarded for their work.
We are now open for entries for Partnerships Awards 2016 and we look forward to seeing what the PPP industry has been working on over the last year.
Good luck with your entries and we hope to see you at the Park Plaza on 12 May.
